My partner and I were on patrol on Saturday night and chose to dine in at First Choice Southern BBQ. He raved about it. As this was my first experience, I have to admit, it was darn good. In fact, it was excellent. I ordered the chopped pork dinner with a double side of macaroni salad plus a side of... More

This place is hard to find even with GPS navigation, but if you find it, the food is pretty good. I had the pork with beans and slaw. The slaw was just ok, but the pork and baked beans were quite tasty. The food is served on disposable plates. The sauce was very nice.

First Choice BBQ is one of few reasons to head to Brandon. The pulled pork is probably the best in town. Spicy BBQ sauce actually has a kick to it. Ribs are fantastic and falling off the bone. If you so happen to be in the area, stop by this BBQ joint. It will help you deal with the horrible... More

By far the best bbq in Tampa! Pork and brisket are delicious. The fritters are a must have as well. Follow the smell of bbq and if you see a line don't worry because they get the orders out quickly.
